Smashwords book reviews by MJ Schutte

  • The Dark Gifts Birthright on Oct. 22, 2011

    Review of The Dark Gifts Birthright by Willow Cross Like I said in a previous review, I hate reading a book on my laptop. The only way I will do it is if the book is really good. I read this book in two days. That alone should tell you how gripping the story is! The very first paragraph made me sit up, take a breath and read it again. Normally, I would not read a book about vampires, but this is the exception for me. The author knows exactly where to bring in new things to keep the reader guessing and very interested. Another great effort by Willow Cross. Easily 5 of out 5 starts
